Some of these trinkets are going to be the death of me!

Decided to jump in and buy 'VVVVV' today for a lovely price of £1.99 on steam. Loved the quick-look here on GB and been looking into buying it for a while. I'm a hour in and have only 1 more guy to rescue but missed a trinket while saving the green dude. So I've decided to head back and get it and it has got me believing that some of these trinkets are actually going to have me tearing my hair out! It's just so frustrating because you know you're the one at fault, not the game. I think it's so brilliantly designed and addictive that it just has me pushing for completion, yet, it may kill me. I hope I'm sure I'm no the only one to reach high levels of frustration and I doubt I'll be the last. As for a closing comment, man I love this game!

Yeah, it took me 30 mins to get Veni Vidi Vici

I barely remember most of the problem trinkets as I usually just kept at it until I eventually got it. 
For me, at least, they always felt within reach which keeps me going.
 
I only recall one in particular that I had to resort to looking up a Youtube video because I just couldn't figure out how to get. When I saw the video I immedeately felt stupid. 
 
But yes, GREAT game!!

I think there about two that are actually hard.
 
The rest are pretty simple.

I hope you aren't going for total completion, because a few of the game modes are... messed up.

No death mode? Super gravitron? F those. Think I'll limit my replay to time trials and flip mode.
